This year we’ve had our fill of April showers. Thank you very much. I’m SO ready for May flowers. So. Very. Ready.
After the terrifically damp weather we’ve had, I had no problems coming up with a name for this quilt: April Showers
Remember this quilt? Well after playing around with the layout a little, I finally decided on layout #2.
I’m really happy with the end result. Originally I thought I wanted more gray in the front of the quilt, but I found that I liked it better as the backing. Oh, I LOVE the back.
For the quilting I did some sweet little loopies – its one of my favorite ways to quilt. It just flows so gracefully and it’s just charming I think.
The binding is a coordinating print from the same Riley Blake line (Rainy Days and Mondays.) I didn’t include any of it in the quilt itself – I saved it all for the binding and I’m glad I did! The finished quilt measures 38 x 40, and it’s listed in the shop!
